The Siskin

By Saastad
I like the composition and the fine background colors in this one. Not my area this either.
But i hope someone will like it. Thanks a lot for the voting, comments and awards on my latest photo.
Always much appreciated.
Weekend again! And i wish everybody a good one!
Pleas tell me if the name of the bird is wrong.

Love the background Arne, makes the bird really stand out plus he does look a cheeky little chap!

Super image of the bird (I assume it is a siskin, as I am not a twitcher!) and I like the background which shows up the bird's plumage very well.

The composition with the bird on the left looking to the empty space to the right, the small bird with its feet visible gripping the thin branch and its head turned slightly toward the photographer as well as the colour, detail and bokeh makes this a wonderful photo of this Sisken, beautifully captured.
